The Gonzo Daily: Friday/Saturday
And so things continue to be monumentally confusing here in the electronic
bearpit. Never mind, Graham, Corinna and I are muddling through as best we can.
But computers, especially my Win7 machine, are the work of the Devil. I am sure
that the hornéd one is lurking somewhere behind the motherboard.
And now, here is the news:
THE GONZO TRACK OF THE DAY: Mary Hopkin - Goodbye...
COMING THIS WEEKEND
THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem
JACKIE LEE REVIEW
YES FEATURING ARW IN THE NEWS
Gonzo Magazine #230
THE HEARTFUL OF SOUL ISSUE
In order to provide a perfect literary counterpoint to you guzzling
chocolate eggs and waving your arms around in delight, here is an issue in which
Jon meets Binky Womack (yes, folks, he is one of those Womacks), Doug writes
about Kate Bush, Neil writes about the Great Beast, and Alan roams the highways
and byways of Lithuania in search of musical delights. And yes, there is lots
more, and it is all free...
It’s all free!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, Friday Night Progressive,
Strange Fruit, the sixth of Jeremy Smith's Seven Deadly Sins radio shows, and
because it was a full moon this week another episode of Canterbury Sans
Frontieres. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr
Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of
more news, reviews, views, interviews and pademelons outside zoos (OK, nothing
to do with small marsupials who have escaped from captivity, but I got carried
away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the
best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!

SPECIAL NOTICE: If you, too, want to unleash the power of your inner rock
journalist, and want to join a rapidly growing band of likewise minded weirdos
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org The more the merrier really.
* The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to
write for us, please contact me at email@example.com. If you are an artist and
want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please copy, paste and spread the word about this magazine as
widely as possible. We need people to read us in order to grow, and as soon as
it is viable we shall be invading more traditional magaziney areas. Join in the
fun, spread the word, and maybe if we all chant loud enough we CAN stop it
raining. See you tomorrow...
* The Gonzo Daily is - as the name implies - a daily online magazine
(mostly) about artists connected to the Gonzo Multimedia group of companies. But
it also has other stuff as and when the editor feels like it. The same team also
do a weekly newsletter called - imaginatively - The Gonzo Weekly. Find out about
it at this link: www.gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.co.uk
* We should probably mention here, that some of our posts are links to
things we have found on the internet that we think are of interest. We are not
responsible for spelling or factual errors in other people's websites. Honest
* Jon Downes, the Editor of all these ventures (and several others) is an
old hippy of 57 who - together with a Jack Russell called Archie, an infantile
orange cat named after a song by Frank Zappa, and two half grown kittens, one
totally coincidentally named after one of the Manson Family, purely because she
squeaks, puts it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown
cottage deep in rural Devon which he shares with various fish. He is ably
assisted by his lovely wife Corinna, his bulldog/boxer Prudence, his elderly
mother-in-law, and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we
mention Archie and the Cats?
